Thanks to all who have provided some feedback. I like criticism as well :-) It helps me learn from my mistakes and motivates me to do better. The next MTX will only get better.

Slewfoot:
I think warbly is the perfect word to describe it. There was a general warbliness to much of the 9/11/82 show I did, and that was unavoidable. I experimented with synching the tracks perfectly, as well as letting the aud lag slightly behind (to varying degrees), and letting the sbd lag slightly behind. I hear the warblinesss on more than just the cymbals. However, I don't think I'm hearing it on the 8/30/81 show. Are you referring to the 20 sec clip, or the Half-step track?

Deadhead225:
The result of the EQ settings I used is even less noticeable than I realized.When I compared them myself, I toggled the EQ settings on and off several times as I was listening, so I could hear the instant difference. I just played the original, and then the version with EQ back to back, and it is much less noticeable.

Earl:
It's JarEd lol. Thanks for the kind words.

cortelle:
Do you know what specifically sounded better with the original file, or did it just overall sound better? Thanks.

I can not believe I am even suggesting this b/c I live in the high range, but did you try reducing in 12-16k range? On 9/11 I mean.

I didn't change any equalization settings for 9/11/82. I smoothed out some audio anomalies, but I thought it might be a pet peeve of some Dead Heads to have the sound not represented as it originally sounds. I know I can make these sound better by changing some setting though. I will not make any huge changes, but for shows that could use some EQ, I plan to make some adjustments. If I mess with the levels too much though, it doesn't sound as good as subtle adjustments, since I can't adjust individual instruments. Like if I reduce the levels in the 12-16k range, it often will make the whole recording sound more dull. Jerry's guitar won't be as vibrant, and won't have the same bite. I aim to make sure Jerry stands out in the recording. I will give that a shot for the 9/11/82 show anyway though just to see how it sounds.

"Jerry's guitar won't be as vibrant, and won't have the same bite. I aim to make sure Jerry stands out in the recording. "

Thanks again for the suggestion on this show. I fell in love with this show while making this. Jerry was in such fine form that evening. Beautiful vocals for '82. Bobby sounds great as well, and I even have to give a nod to Brent. I just wish Phil was more present in shows from this time period. Cheers!
